Join the Sound Awareness Movement

My name is Wayne Lewis Lesser, founder of lessersound™. I am a hearing impaired person. I was born into a world of lesser sound. I want more safe sound and protection from unsafe sound, for less cost for more people worldwide. Others in our world have entered the world of lesser sound over time through aging, noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) or otherwise. We are Hearing Impaired People. We are H-I-P.

Millions more of us each year all over the world on every continent and in every country are or will become H-I-P. Being H-I-P is a human condition. No matter where you live, we H-I-P share a common understanding and bond. lessersound™ was created by H-I-P for H-I-P and their families and friends to bring more safe sound and protection into H-I-P and family lives for less cost, for more people, worldwide, We know who you are, where you are, and feel your experiences deeply and personally because we are and have been there. We are you and you are us. The rest of us are Hearing At Risk People ( H-A-R-P). We are everyone that is not H-I-P.

Through the lessersound ™ site and our new lessersoundapp website, with our friends and partners, we intend to become the number one source of general information and resource for advocacy on the causes, treatment and prevention of hearing loss. Our vision is simple and straightforward: Create products and information about More safe sound for less cost for more people worldwide. lessersound™ believes that it is intolerable for H-I-P to go without adequate care, protection, education or access to affordable resources and products and for H-A-R-P to enter the future in ignorance of the risk of harm caused by unsafe sound. In essence, our goals of innovation, integrity, advocacy and education maximizing potential of the individual and minimizing harmful sound risks, and shared prosperity, is a better way to improve our global society.

We believe that environmental noise is an ever increasing problem in our human society worldwide, Since 1971 it has been estimated that occupational hearing hearing loss compensation alone exceeds 20 billion dollars and makes occupational hearing loss one of the most significant health hazards in today’s workplace. That study was done in 1994. Today it is much much higher and the number of people and their families and businesses who have suffered are much greater.,And then, there is the consumer, the little guy and gal who also needs help awareness advocacy and new products so lessersound is now in development to offer cost effective products, to make rational profits, and build market share through increased exposure, and volume sales , leading to the creation of brand loyalty.” More safe sound for less cost for more people worldwide”. Our first product, “the color of sound” smartphone APP is featured in this site and found at

lessersound™ intends to develop and has developed the first of a family of products to fill those goals from the point of view of what is best for the ultimate consumer, H-I-P and H-A-R-P, you and me.

Welcome to the lessersound color of sound app to protect yourself and others from unsafe sound and to the beginning of the Sound Awareness Movement.

    I am a student at San Francisco State University, majoring in Communicative Disorders. When i came across this app i was so fascinated and wanted to learn more! Once i downloaded the Lesser Sound app i discovered it’s invaluable possibilities. The app was easy to navigate; by a simple tap of the screen the app captures volume information and documents where the location is. You can search a location and see the average decibel (dB) measurement! How cool is that! This app is great for people with hearing loss or are hard of hearing. It creates a more comfortable experience for that particular person. I can see this app also being used in a professional setting, an SLP might use the app for therapy!
